Clear – Flexible – Durable
Designed to directly print text, linear barcodes, 2D codes and graphics on plastic laboratory tubes using patent pending Thermal Pixel Printing technology
- Prints directly on the surface of tubes from 0.2 ml to 50 ml – Labels or stickers are not required
- Clearer and more durable marking compared to marker pen – Consistently legible text and barcodes at high resolutions
- Resistant to alcohol, water, liquid nitrogen, DMSO and mechanical abrasion – Long lasting sample identification at competitive “per mark” cost
The TubeMarker™ 2 allows printing directly onto the surface of plastic laboratory tubes between 6 mm – 30 mm indiameter.
There is no need for using labels or marker pens. Marking is resistant to ethanol, isopropanol, water, DMSO*, liquidnitrogen and mechanical abrasion. The prints are also stable over a wide temperature range (-196 °C to 100 °C). Markings do not transfer when touching the tubes.
Several lines of text can be printed, for example: sample name, sampling site, your name, date and time etc. All TrueTypefonts available on the connected computer can be printed in a range of different sizes, which determines the maximumprintable content. Bold and italic type is also available.
The instrument can also print linear barcodes, datamatrix (2D) codes and graphic files (monochrome .bmp, .gif or .tiff)such as logos. Print orientation can be vertical or horizontal (except for barcodes which print vertically only).
The TubeMarker™ 2 includes an Automatic Printing Delay feature, where the instrument is able to detect the presenceof a tube and automatically prints the next label entry in the software. This feature makes printing to the tube surfacemuch easier and faster than marking by hand.
